Short Description
Redis backend for DynomiteDB.
Full Description

Redis runtime container

The redis container provides a clean, reusable and immutable runtime environment for the Redis server. Redis can be used as an in-memory backend for DynomiteDB.

What is Dynomite?

Dynomite is a framework that turns single server databases into scalable, distributed databases.

Specifically, Dynomite is a Dynamo-inspired layer that provides sharding, replication, a gossiper, a partitioner and other shared database infrastructure.

DynomiteDB currently provides the Redis API for accessing both in-memory and persistent backends. A common API allows you to reuse queries, data models and knowledge across both traditional database and caching workloads.

DynomiteDB currently supports the following pluggable backends:

  • Redis: Big data cache for in-memory workloads
  • LMDB: Traditional database (persistent storage) for high performance workloads
  • RocksDB: Traditional database (persistent storage) for big data workloads on SSD
  • LevelDB: Traditional database (persistent storage) for big data workloads on hard drives (i.e. spinning disks)

How to use this image

Start a redis instance

docker run --name redis --net=host -d -p 22122:22122 dynomitedb/redis

Use a custom redis.conf configuration file

You can provide Redis with a custom configuration file as show below. In this example, we first clone a git repository that has a custom redis.conf file.

If you plan to use a custom configuration file, then stop and delete the redis container if you previously ran the command above. docker stop redis, then docker rm redis.

mkdir -p ~/repos && cd $_

git clone

cd docker-custom-conf-files

docker run --name redis --net=host -d -p 22122:22122 -v ${PWD}/redis.conf:/etc/dynomitedb/redis.conf dynomitedb/redis

Manually build the dynomitedb/redis image

The redis Docker image is automatically built via DockerHub at

The instructions below allow you to manually build the redis image, if required.

Clone the docker-redis repo from Github.

mkdir -p ~/repos/ && cd $_

git clone

cd into the docker-redis directory.

cd ~/docker-redis

Create the redis image.

docker build -t dynomitedb/redis .
